Sorry we haven’t been here too often lately but let me tell you why…
The internet connection was set up in the nasty, leaking and freezing trailer and momma just couldn’t bring herself to go there to use it often. Today, Christmas eve, the internet provider came out to the property and moved the connection so it is now in the house. Now momma doesn’t have an excuse to NOT keep up Puffy and my diaries. Of course she still has lots more work that needs to be done on the house so I’m pretty certain that she won’t be able to update our diaries quite as often as she did before we moved.
We are no longer sleeping in the garage/warehouse. It got too cold in there without heat and although the electric blanket and comforter kept us warm at night in bed, it was freezing in there if you weren’t snuggled up in the blankets.
The plumber came out and connected the BIG bathtub in the master bathroom, the dual sinks plus the water heater and washer and dryer in the laundry room. He had already installed working toilets in both bathrooms plus one in the garage/workshop but not having drive one hour each way to a laundry has been a real blessing. The humans were also excited about not having to use the dinky shower in the nasty trailer any more. The plumber also installed the utility sink in the laundry room and Puffy and I have already had several baths and feet cleaning in it.
The humans are trying to get the house finished so the code enforcers can come back and hopefully sign it off, but there still remains much more work to do. Daddy did hoist the attic furnace up and ran the vents to some of the rooms so we do have some heat in the house now. It’s a good thing too because the snows have arrived, in fact, we had 4” of snow just last week and today there is another snow storm going on so we are definitely having a white Christmas.
We got several packages from some of our pals. The bacon air fresheners are going to be wonderful the next time Puffy is on a road trip in the car – BOL, BOL. We got two Christmas bone stuffies that Puffy says are HIS. We also got two moose stuffies and I said those were mine even though one of them was addressed to Puffy. I think it is only fair that I get to keep both since he hogged up the other stuffies, don’t you? We also got some home made treats that are to die for. In that package were additional treats for the humans such as Apple Butter that momma says is much better than any she has ever had before, fudge, cookies, breads and honey. Thank you pals (you all know who you are), for sending us these wonderful packages – we love you all!
We also received lots of Christmas cards and one front of an envelope (no we did not tell the person who tried to send us a card that all the postal service forwarded to us was the front of the envelope). Momma thought about it and decided that it really wasn't about receiving the card, as the envelope front conveyed the same message, in it's onw way. Hopefully momma will get busy and take photos of the cards and post it one our page.
All those stuffies that momma bought before we moved that she found on sale were misplaced in one of the boxes yet to be unpacked in the garage/warehouse so I’m hoping that Puffy and I will get them sometime after the holidays (one can NEVER have too many stuffies according to Puffy).
Happy Holidays to everyone of you.
OMD! I hope it wasn't the card from us. It would be just like momma to do something like that.
Merry Christmas my sweet love.
It wasn't the card from you!!! Momma put your card right on the top of the card display.
